Jackrabbit week - Day 6: Marriage

And thus, E.Aster Bunnymund and Jack Frost exchanged their vows on February 29th, the enchanted day when winter marries spring.

Weddings are awful and wonderful. Magical weddings twice as much.

North and Tooth are happy to provide their special brand of encouragement. Sandy does the honors, because no words are necessary. Bunny and Jack are fools in love and only have eyes for each other. Pitch is hissing in the background at not being invited. :^)

Jack's personal space / comfort zone / interaction / physical contact - Analysis


(Because I wanted an excuse to make some RotG screenshots/edits AND do a thorough analysis that’s been on my mind for a while. I’ll be referencing the frames I’ve posted in my discussion below, though I’ll also mention a bunch of other instances or scenes.)

This is inspired by a post I saw a while back that pointed out how Jack stood separately from the Guardians in the Warren when Bunnymund had Sophie in his arms – how even after helping them reconnect with their love for children, he still wasn’t truly a part of their group. So then I thought, this is a theme that carries strongly throughout the entire movie - and it pivots around the fact that Jack has been essentially alone for 300 years and unable to touch or interact with anyone.

At first, of course, Jack doesn’t get too close to the Guardians. (The only reason they caught him in the first place was because he let down his guard, acting cheeky and casual around Bunny. Of course he didn’t like being manhandled by yetis, shoved in a sack and tossed through a magic portal, but that was the only way they would’ve gotten him to the Pole with minimum fuss. North may have no concept of sarcasm, but he’s always practical.)

At the Pole, the closest Jack voluntarily gets to one of them is Sandy, when he kneels down to pay attention to Sandy’s symbols. (See the post I made here earlier today discussing their relationship.) Otherwise, he stands fairly far apart from them. Except for, of course… when they themselves invade his personal space, which in Toothiana’s case is just plain weird, in North’s tense (when he backs him up against the door) and also weird, and with Bunnymund, just plain tense. Jack doesn’t oppose it - after all, he’s not used to it and tends to just go with the flow anyway, even with the Tooth Fairy’s fingers digging around in his mouth or the Easter Bunny breathing heavily into his face - but he’s not exactly over the moon about it. (Pun intended.)

He reluctantly agrees to the sleigh ride, and doesn’t mind the company there, as he’s in his element (literally - wind and cold), plus he gets to poke fun at Bunny too. Once they’re near Punjam Hy Loo, then the first voluntary physical contact he makes with someone so far in is Baby Tooth. I find this pretty symbolic, believing firmly that she’s his sister reincarnate and all. She’s the first one he willingly reaches out to and assists – which is, of course, the reason why he was chosen by MiM in the first place.

Then at the palace, after Baby Tooth leaves his side, Jack’s relatively alone again. He doesn’t feel comfortable joining the others in comforting Tooth. The distance is palpable; he’s a whole level lower, a platform away, even Pitch ends up closer to him than the others are at that point. Until, that is, Bunnymund jumps forward right after Pitch insults Jack, actually pushing Jack aside to get at the Boogeyman. It’s hard to tell how Jack feels about this, but as Pitch said, he’s currently a ‘neutral party’. He feels no less poorly about Pitch compared to Bunnymund right now.

Down at ground level, it’s the first time Jack actually tries to understand and connect with what it is the Guardians do – specifically, Tooth. He crouches a little closer to her, walks along with her on the water as she explains the meaning of the mural and her job, and even lets her touch his shoulder. North, Bunny and Sandy are currently very far away, just a blur in the distance; it’s a pretty personal moment for him right now, learning that he may really have memories after all. Once excitement sets in, though, he flies off - perching an equal distance from all of them, but still separate by being on that rock.

Come tooth collection time, things really start to change. He’s pledged himself to their cause in exchange for getting his memories back (which is actually a problem in and of itself; he should really have done it in a purely selfless way, which is why he’s had trouble being seen/believed for so long). So of course, he chats a bit with Tooth, competes with Bunny, and by the end, is in cramped quarters in Jamie’s bedroom. Tooth gets pretty close to him and touches him again when they again share a quiet moment together (note - these sort of moments are a big reason why I ship them, I could go on about Rainbow Snowcone all day but nvm). He seems to be part of their group when Jamie awakens, until reality harshly sets in again and it’s like he’s really not there at all. He’s still so different from the Guardians, even while standing in their midst.

True to character, he’s happy to dive into the fray all by himself when he spots the lone Nightmare – except this time, he’s not alone; Sandy makes the choice to follow him, and Jack’s incredibly comfortable flying and fighting alongside him. And again he charges forward alone, with nothing but his sheer will powering him, when Sandy - perhaps his only friend amongst the Guardians - falls, and then he’s back on the sleigh again after having his full weight lifted by Tooth (think about it - he most likely weighs more than her), Bunnymund actually clustering closer to him in concern. He’s not properly conscious, though, and by the time we get to Sandy’s memorial…

… Jack is nowhere in sight. This always surprises and confuses me - but I guess Jack is just too hurt and alone, and again too much of a stranger, to be able to share such a personal moment with the Guardians. It’s the only scene with the Guardians (after he meets them) where he’s completely absent, feeling terrible about the fact he couldn’t do anything to save Sandy.

He’s understanding more now. He’s walking forward with Tooth and North, agreeing pretty readily to go ahead with helping out for Easter. He charges forward in sync with them when they’re surprised by Sophie, but then moves quite far away again to perch on a mossy boulder when he realises just how clueless they are about kids. He only gets close to them some time later when he sits next to Bunny; I suppose he also wanted to give them space, give Bunny the time to connect with Sophie without interfering. And then as North and Tooth crouch around Bunny and admire the sleeping girl as well, Jack’s distance is pronounced. He didn’t seem so far away when just sitting beside Bunnymund, but with the others there, the contrast is striking; he’s still alone.

He willingly carries Sophie all the way back to Burgess (I know he’s technically not supposed to be able to touch her, but it’s my headcanon that he can still physically interact with beings like animals or very small children, especially if they’re unconscious/sleeping, as children don’t yet have the necessary level of awareness; it’s why so many kids have an 'imaginary friend’. Anyway.) And Baby Tooth is still with him at this point. Again, symbolic for the sibling-connection. She always flies close to him, right until Pitch distracts him and snatches her away. It’s almost like… she’s his last lifeline, his only connection to what he is and what he can possibly be, and in one master stroke she’s taken away from him and replaced with his memories. (Same difference, no?)

He finds the Guardians, Bunnymund comes an inch within punching him in the face. An understandable reaction, but still, it really, REALLY stings, even if it didn’t meet its mark. The knowledge that Bunnymund actually could have laid a hand on him and really hurt him, that he accidentally let down one of the only beings in the world who had started to have faith in him… of course it’s shocking. Of course Jack sheds a tear in this scene and nowhere else. His happy facade has finally broken.

He abandons the miniature North-doll, and all he has left on him is the tooth-box. But the tooth-box is cold and empty to him. Everything is cold and empty to him, so he goes to the coldest, emptiest place on Earth – Antarctica. He doesn’t activate his memories – either he doesn’t want to, or doesn’t know how to. Again, same difference at this point. And the next person who tries to get close to him (both physically and emotionally) is met with harsh screams and icy blows. Jack’s had enough of being close to people, maybe it would be better off if he was alone after all; what’s the point in friendship and trust if he never fails to screw things up?

Until Pitch reveals Baby Tooth and returns Jack’s purpose to him. If anything, Pitch’s two biggest mistakes were a) giving Jack his memories in the first place and b) giving back Baby Tooth. Together, they held the key to unlock what Jack needed in that deep, dark crevasse in Antarctica. Even in gingerly sheltering Baby Tooth in his hands, Jack regretted that he couldn’t make her warm. Even in holding the most important person in the world to him, in his very hands, he felt regret and disappointment at himself. This, guys, is what I call heart-wrenching character development. The boy who hasn’t been able to hold someone he loves for three hundred years still feels bad, even when he can.

What he did for Baby Tooth - giving up his staff for her - was pretty selfless. It’s the only material possession he has. If she couldn’t already see him, I bet that act would qualify as something for him to be believed in for. But that true moment comes soon after, when he saves the very existence of Bunnymund in the nick of time. He doesn’t make Jamie believe for himself. He does it for Bunny. He does it for the Guardians. Because he is still overflowing with compassion, even after he let them down. That is why he rejected Pitch Black’s offer, and that is why he finally earns himself a believer; he’s finally worthy of being believed in. I wonder now if it’s actually partially under the Man in the Moon’s control whether or not Jack could be seen.

From then, Jack is close to Jamie like he was (and still is) close to his sister. He stands beside him and playfully nudges him, he stands protectively in front of him as Pitch Black threatens him. And the Guardians cluster worriedly around him after Pitch knocks him out of the sky; he’s proven his worth, and he’s now their only hope. They have nothing left to lose, and he now has everything - a shining happy future in particular - to lose if they lose to Pitch. From hereon out it’s not 'him’ and 'them’, it’s 'us’. He stands beside them every step of the way and nearly is killed fighting (if it were not for Sandy’s resurrection). And he really is a part of their team as they huddle joyfully around Sandy.

There’s one more step to go, though, and it’s mere minutes away as the sun starts to rise on Easter Monday. Toothiana tacklehugs him - he’s truly at ease now, he automatically places his hands on her waist and probably has some cute thoughts running through his head (at least until Baby Tooth separates them. Imagine her squeaking “Ew mom, hands off my brother!”). And then of course North hugs Jack as well and kisses him on both cheeks, leaving the poor thing pretty dazed but no longer weirded out.

And the best moment of all - we all know it, it’s been analysed so thoroughly - when Jamie runs at Jack but doesn’t run through him. The shock on Jack’s face is plainer than the day that’s just started. He’s finally - finally - able to accept that maybe he’s worth believing in, worth loving, worth being trusted. It’ll still be a rocky road for a while - it’ll take a while for three hundred year’s worth of fear and disappointment to fade away (WHICH IS WHY I NEED A SEQUEL SO BAD GDI DREAMWORKS), but for now, Jack is able to cherish the hug from his first believer.

*rolls around in the eternal feelings RotG gives him*

I even redesigned my whole tumblr page for the occasion! :3 So please do check it out everyone! I worked hard on it, and personally, I’m in love with it! x3 Special thanks to @arcanabreak (with some help of some brushes she gave me) and sassy-frost-lord for encouraging me in making this happen, and to @cainballad and @lastaim especially as well for making me feel proud in making this! I hope everyone loves the new theme! Happy Halloween! ;w;

Frozen Love (Jack Frost x Reader) Part I

“Snow day!” Jack cheered, soaring across the blue sky with the wind.

With a wave of his staff, snowflakes and frost were sent scattered around the city, leaving everything with his frosty tread mark. He grinned, seeing kids playing in the snow.

That was definitely his favourite part about being a guardian, seeing the kids enjoy his work.

Waving to the few who could see him, he took off again, ready to spread of more of his snowy talent. Flying across the horizon, the late night sky held a chilling air that barely affected the Guardian of Fun.

Creating a light snow fall across the busy city, he landed back onto a rooftop to admire his work.

“Perfect,” he said, nodding approvingly.

This is one of my favourite moments in the movie. Why? Let’s discuss. This is the happiest Jack looks in all of RotG. Besides the fact his face is literally lit up, the way it actually lights up emotionally kills me in such a good way. He would recognise Burgess on a globe because it’s his birth town both as a spirit and as a human (and he’s JUST discovered those memories). Nonetheless, there could be some error in where the light is appearing on the globe. But he instantly recognises it as Jamie. A kid whose name he remembered because - it’s my headcanon that Jack remembers the names of every single kid he meets, even if they never saw him. If he was bitter and spiteful he wouldn’t have remembered. But Jack does. Even though Jamie was the most recent kid to prove to him that he was still invisible. And just - the way he says Jamie’s name like he knows him personally, the way his eyes widen and Jamie’s light is reflected in them - it’s perfect. (And this is why Bennefrost is my OTP - just imagine that feeling multiplied a hundred times over once both Jamie and Jack start growing up. It’s an irrevocable connection as deep as the universe.)

Jack Frost x Fem!Reader |Guardian Angel| (Pt. One)

Jack Frost X Fem!Reader | Guardian Angel

Imagine Jack coming to save you after Pitch Black attacks you and tries to take you away from Jack.

——————————————

You looked back at Jack, the others preparing to follow Tooth in order to get the teeth and fairies back from Pitch. Jack placed his hand on your shoulder concern written across his face, “Are you sure you’ll be okay here alone? One of us can stay behind I don’t-” You smiled softly placing a hand on his cheek.

“No, you have to go with the others… they need you Jack.” His eyes softened and he removed your hand grasping it gently in his own.

“But you need me more.” Jack spoke in a soft tone as the others prepared the sleigh for take off. He didn’t want to worry Bunny or any of the others.

“Jack trust me, besides I have my locket and Baby Tooth with me. If anything happens, which it won’t, I’ll have some way to get in touch, now go they’re waiting.” You squeezed his hand in reassurance before he let go and turned to walk away, climbing into next to Bunny he looked back at you as the sleigh took off.

You sighed as the small fairy landed on your shoulder squeaking in question, “Im worried for him, Baby Tooth… What if Pitch hurts him or my brother?” She nuzzled your neck as if to comfort you and you giggled pushing her away with your finger. “Okay, okay I get it I should just think positive.” She nodded and flew off your shoulder pointing to you then pretended to fall asleep.

“Are you saying I should get some rest?” The small fairy nodded zipping back down to land on your head. “Maybe you’re right, after all that’s happened I should rest.” You agreed to the Baby’s plan and made your way towards the stairs, when a strange sound had caught your attention. The small fairy hid underneath your hair squeaking in fear. Turning to walk towards where the sound came from you froze in fear as familiar dark figure slipped right from the shadows before you.

“Greetings, {Y/N}… it’s so good to finally meet face to face.” Pitch’s smirk grew as your rising fear filled his senses, and you took a few steps back. Your hand reached up to your locket in attempt to summon Jack, but something wrapped around your wrist yanking you down to the ground, causing the small baby fairy to fly from your hair. “Baby Tooth!” She was snatched up by one of the nightmares and you yelled in anger. Another tendril of sand wrapped around your wrist pinning you to the cold metal floor.

Pitch chuckled circling you as you struggled to break free from the sand pinning you. He stopped just above your head and bent over so his face was close to your own. “You know when I imagined the newest addition to the Guardians, I didn’t expect it to be this easy? Not even able to lift a finger to strike me back. Don’t you worry though I’m sure Jack will come running to save you… I’m sure of it.” Another strand connected the two bind around your own wrists and the nightmare drug you into the shadows your screams echoing throughout the palace. Pitch’s dark laugh following behind..

Progressional post for “Still Dream”. (Link to complete piece with quote: http://jngarrettart.tumblr.com/post/76167280322/well-as-promised-heres-my-now-completed-rise)

Ok, so there was a LOT of work that went into this piece. I don’t always go through every single step I’m showing here, but this composition was so complex, I needed each stage to be a solid foundation for the next. This is going to be a longish post, but I hope it will also be interesting, so here we go!

•Image 1. My very rough thumbnail for the piece. Essentially just marking in the basic shapes from my head, and where the characters were possibly going to be placed. This was about 3x4 inches.

•Image 2. Beginning layout and design, placing key components of the composition. Roughly 8 1/2 x 9 inches, the size I would be working in for the rest of the piece.

•Image 3. Tracing paper layers showing the adjustments I made to Jack and Jamie’s position in the composition, and dolphins replacing the school of fish.

•Image 4. I used a light box to trace the lines I wanted from the previous stage onto graph paper. I rarely use graph paper for my projects, but with this level of complexity, I wanted a guide to help ensure I was placing the structural parts of the piece in proper symmetry and alignment. Once I transferred the lines I had already established, I finished drawing the characters and refining the details of the piece freehand.

•Image 5. When the drawing was done, I made a quick photocopy and used a dark layout pencil to rough in where I thought the general tones would be. Some of these changed as the actual painting progressed.

•Image 6. Once I was satisfied with the level of my drawing, I again used a light box, this time to trace my pencil drawing onto watercolor paper using a limited selection of color pencils. I use this method for a couple of reasons. One, I get to work out any kinks on a different surface, ensuring the paper for my final piece is never overworked before I start painting. Two, the color pencils are wax based, which allows my lines to remain intact even when I run paint over them. I try to keep my artist’s thinking cap on when I make these transfers. I am never just mindlessly tracing; I am re-drawing using my previous layer as a guide, but also giving myself permission to make small alterations as I go that will bring it closer to my vision for the piece.

•Image 7. Final piece, done in watercolor and color pencil. I use the paints and pencils freely in any area I feel they are needed. However, the final piece is definitely more paint than pencil. I also used a small amount of white crayon to create the frost on Jack’s hoodie, breeches, and staff.

Some final notes on the composition: I first had the idea for this piece when I re-encountered a quote by G.K. Chesterton shortly after I saw RotG, which said, “At the four corners of a child’s bed stand Perseus and Roland, Sigurd and St. George. If you withdraw the guard if heroes you are not making him rational; you are only leaving him to fight the devils alone.” I thought how well it fit the whole concept of the story, and I wanted to make a piece of fan art based on that. The inner frame is meant to resemble a bed, and I have tried to include many details that tie into the story and characters, from Sandy’s little ocean dreams and dinosaurs, to the phases of the moon and the nightmares. The quilt pattern that runs along the sides of the central image is called “flying geese”, and so is a subtle nod also to the books on which the movie was based. Beside the movie itself, I tried to reference the flowing lines of Mucha’s art nouveau, and the detail of The Book of Kells as inspiration.

Well, there you have it, and I hope you enjoy seeing the progress! Thanks everyone who has liked and shared my painting over the last few days! I have loved reading your comments and tags and I will try to reply to some of them soon, but I am thoroughly delighted you are all enjoying the piece. :)
